Apple rumoured to have a larger MacBook Air in the works for next year
Reputedly, Apple has settled on 2023 as the year in which it will release a larger MacBook Air. To recap, Apple has been discussing the idea internally as far back as August 2007, five months before it released the original 13-inch model. It then took Apple almost four years to bring a second display option to market, which it discontinued in late 2016.
Writing in DSCC’s Quarterly Advanced IT Display Shipment and Technology Report, Ross Young asserts that will announce two MacBook Air models next year, including one with approximately a 15-inch display. Additionally, Young claims that there will be a 'slightly larger' 13-inch MacBook Air. It remains to be seen whether this is the same design that Apple is expected to showcase later this year, though.
Incidentally, Young's claims mirror those made in 2021 by Mark Gurman. Last February, Gurman stated that Apple had 'considered building a larger version...with a 15-inch screen'. However, he added that Apple had decided against releasing a 15-inch MacBook Air for at least another generation. In the meantime, Apple is rumoured to reveal a redesigned 13-inch MacBook Air in the second half of 2022, allegedly with an Apple M2 SoC and in multiple colours. A revised 13-inch MacBook Pro has leaked as well, although Apple is yet to launch this model yet either.
